CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1887. 

MOON IS THE RULING PLANET THIS YEAR. 



Concerning the influence of the Moon, those of 
old, it is believed, have said, If this planet is seen in 
certain positions towards the sun, the earth and 
other planets, its power will be observed in the 
weather, in the productiveness of the seasons and in 
the special constitution of both men and animals. 

The Year in General. This year will be more 
moist than cold and dry. 

Spring. Will be very wet and warm, with occa- 
sional frost. March will be cold throughout; April 
rainy ; May, in the beginning, will be fine, with con- 
siderable rain, followed by severe cold. June will be 
very pleasant, with occasional rains. 

Summer. Summer will be occasionally warm, but 
frequently cold. 

Fall and Winter. The beginning of this season 
will be wet and moderately cold ; afterwards quite 
cold and wet ; with December will be snow, followed 
by much rain. After the 20th it will be pretty cold 
and cloudy, till towards the 12th of January; after- 
wards more moderate, but soon cold again, until 
about the 25th, when much snow and rain will fall. 
March will be, in the beginning, rough and cold, 
then warm. During this winter sheep and bees will 
be apt to die. 

Cultivation of Summer Grain. When this year 
has a warm summer, the sowing of the summer 
crops should not be delayed, yet they should not be 
thrown into the ground too early, since the hot 
weather commences late. Barley and oats, at least. 



will produce moderately; also lentils, peas and 
millet, which often produce very well on good fields. 
Do not sow too late nor too early. There will be 
plenty of hay, but little second crop. 

Winter Grain. The fields of winter grain, and 
especially the rye, which if sown early in the fall 
and is rank and large, should be pastured down with 
the sheep, otherwise it will grow too rank and produce 
more straw than grain. If the wheat in May is large 
and rank, it will produce little, for it grows' too fast; 
this, however, will not be the case on poor soil. 

Fall Seeding. This should be sown as early as 
possible ; it w^ill then produce little enough, for dur- 
ing the cold weather it will grow but very little, and 
if winter should come early, sheep should not be 
permitted to pasture on it, or they will crop it too 
short. All the seed should be sown deep into the 
earth, else by the plentiful floods of winter it will be 
washed out. 

Fruit. In some parts will be plenty ; in others 
scarce. Acorns will be scarce. 

Hops. These will produce moderately ; generally 
sufler in the spring from mildew and hail. 

Wine. There will be little vintage ; grapes should 
be gathered early, as there is no hope for good 
weather. Vines should be covered early. 

Wind and Storm. In the winter there will be 
heavy winds and extraordinary rains; in the spring 
and summer there will not be a great deal of thunder- 
storm, though some, which will not do much injury.

THE GOOD SHEPHERD. 



A shepherd is one whose duty it is to care for 
the sheep given into his charge, and the people 
of the present age have only a faint idea of the 
duties and responsibilities of the vocation as 
they were in the more primitive ages, and in the 
time of Christ as referred to in the New Testa- 
ment. The sheep given into the care of the 
shepherd was a most sacred trust. Under his 
care the sheep were not only to be fed and folded, 



In the church we have Christ as the good shep- 
herd and his people as the flock. When in the 
fold we are his and are the recipients of his ten- 
der care. For us he laid down his life. He 
loved us unto death, even the death of the Cross. 
When we were as sheep going astray, he called 
us, led us back to the fold, and by remaining 
his sheep we have the assurance that we are for- 
ever safe from every invading foe — that he will 
make us lie down in green pastures and lead us 
by the still and safe waters. Why not enter the 
fold and be the sheep of so good a shepherd ? 




^^iif w "iiw. 



but they were supposed to be safe from any in- 
vading foe. He stood between them and the en- 
emy. In the 23rd Psalm we have the true posi- 
tion of the shepherd most beautifully set forth. 
''The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures : 
he leadeth me beside the still waters. ' ' 

The good shepherd careth for his sheep so 
that there is no danger or want. Christ, in 
speaking of his church, represents himself as the 
good shepherd. '' I am the good shepherd: 
the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. " 



A HINT TO YOUNG MEN. 



Nothing in the long run can be more unsatis- 
factory in your lady friend than mere good looks. 
Unless she possesses something more, her face is 
likely to become unfair a little after thirty. — 
Then the disappointment to you will be com- 
plete — I mean if your investment is made in a 
stock of ''good looks." Better a thousand 
times that your choice should be a woman with 
a broken nose, but with a head full of common 
sense, and a heart full of good things.

THE BRETHREN'S ALMANAC. 



For a number of years we have been supply- 
ing the church with an almanac, adapted espe- 
cially to the wants of Christian families. So far 
our work has met with favor and the demand 
for the Brethren's Almanac has been steadily 
growing. Being thus encouraged, we feel like 
continuing, and as the time is now here to make 
preparations for the 1887 almanac we enter the 
work with the determination of making it just 
as good as we can with the material we have on 
hands. We have a number of friends who are 
kind enough to suggest as to what it ought to be 
but very few have, as yet, rendered us any assist- 
ance towards making it up to their standard, 
hence we are compelled to draw largely on our 
own resources to fill its pages. 

As to the astronomical calculations and other 
things essential to a good almanac, we have se- 
cured the very best, such as are found in all well 
regulated family almanacs, and feel sure, that in 
this department, satisfaction will be given. 

The ''Ministerial List" has received a thor- 
ough revision and all the corrections sent us 
have been carefully noted and made, and we be- 
lieve is more nearly correct than ever before. 

The reading matter is not what we feel it 
ought to be, but we have used such as we think 
will be interesting and instructive to every Chris- 
tian family. 

On the whole, we feel sure that it will be found 

very much better than the hundreds of cheap 

and trashy almanacs with which the country is 

flooded and that are made for sale rather than 

for use. Thanking our brethren and friends for 

past patronage, we solicit your continued good 

. wishes and aid, hoping that the benefit will be 

1 mutual and that we may all enjoy a happy and 

I prosperous sailing through the year 1887. 



PROLONGING EXISTENCE. 



Long life has been considered a great desider- 
atum. In the Old Testament the promise of 
life is held up as the great consolation ; while in 
the New Testament long life, eternal life, is con- 
stantly placed before man's imagination as the 
greatest of all possible rewards. 

The Egyptians thought they had discovered 
the secret in the constant use of emetics. It be- 
came a custom among them to take about two 
emetics a month. When an Egyptian met anoth- 
er, the common greeting was not, "How do ye 
do?" but, '' How did your last emetic operate?" 

At one time, during the Dark Ages, alche- 
mists sought in ways, which seem ludicrous 
enough to us, for some substance which, intro- 
duced into the body, might prolong life. ''Orig- 
inal matter ' ' was looked upon to be the elemen- 
tary cause of all existence. If they could only 
find this they could work miracles, they could 
perpetuate life indefinitely. In seeking this 
original matter the most extraordinary paths 
were trodden. Millions of vessels, phials, and 
retorts were buried in dung-hills or other fetid 
masses, to discover through decomposition, the 
" original matter." 

Gold was then as now, the most precious ol 
metals. It was thought that the introduction 
of it into the system, if it could be kept there, 
would greatly prolong life. A multitude of bu- 
sy idiots were at work day and night, in con- 
cealed corners, trying to discover some means 
of rendering gold potable, that it would remain 
in the body, and not return to the metallic form, 
but become assimilated, and thus enter as an in- 
tegral part of the system. As gold is immortal, 
it was fondly believed that the body of which it 
was a part might, with it, become immortal. — 
The common people of Italy, France, and Ger- 
many often denied themselves the necessaries of 
life to purchase a few drops of the tincture of 
gold which they swallowed with the most enthu- 
siastic confidence. 

The mania, in some one of a hundred forms, 
continued for several hundred years, and, in- 
deed, has not passed from all classes at this hour. 

About three hundred years since, in some por- 
tions of Europe they began to consider the laws 
of man's physical health. Within these three 
hundred years the length of life in Europe has 
increased fifty per cent. The larger part of this 
improvement has occurred within the last one 
hundred years. The last fifty years have been

ORGANIZATION OF THE WADDAMS 
GROVE CONGREGATION, STEPH- 
ENSON AND JO DAVIESS 
COUNTIES, ILL. 



The undersigned with some fifteen or more 
members emigrated from the Aughwick congre- 
gation, Huntingdon Co., Pa., to Northern 111. 
March 24th, 1855. We handed in our letters of 
membership in the Yellow Creek church which 
then embraced Stephenson and Jo Daviess coun- 
ties. This church was organized in 1848 with 
Eld. Daniel Fry as overseer. The writer was 
elected to the ministry in the Aughwick church 
Pa., May 1851, in his 22nd year and soon after 
his arrival in Illinois was advanced to the sec- 
ond degree of the ministry ; and as a son with a 
a father labored and traveled with Elder Fry the 
rest of his days, about twenty-six years. 

The advantages of a house of worship, and 
also a division of the district were soon discuss- 
ed. The house was built in 1858 with the un- 
derstanding that if a division was effected the 
Yellow Creek members should aid the new dis- 
trict in building a house in the near future. In 
1859 ^^ division was unanimously agreed upon, 
and an organization was effected, calling it the 



Waddams Grove church. The writer was then 
elected temporary overseer. Brother Daniel 
Fry was still retained as our Elder. 

In i860 the Waddams Grove meeting house 
was built on the conditions above alluded to ; 
and as brother B. H. Kepner and the writer 
were the only ministers in the new organization, 
and brother Allen Boyer and John Wales the 
only deacons, the first election for officers was 
held April 7th, i860. W. T. H. Bauman (now 
living in Morrill Kan., and preaching for the 
Progressives) was elected to the ministry, and 
brethren Michael Reber of Waterloo, Iowa, and 
Isaac Myers of Dallas county, Iowa, to the dea- 
conship. 

After this the following elections were held : 
May loth, 1862, brother Allen Boyer to the min- 
istry. 

August 27th, 1862, Isaac Rhodes, now of On- 
tario, Los Angeles Co., Cal., to the deaconship. 

November ist, 1862, Isaac Myers, now of Dal- 
las Co., Iowa, to the ministry. 

October, 1863, A. H. Lutz deacon. 

June loth, 1864, Charles P. Center, now of 
Blackhawk Co., Iowa, to the ministry and Isaac 
Kemper (now deceased) and Nicholas Weber to 
the deaconship and the writer ordained to the 
eldership. 

October 23rd, 1869, A. H. Lutz to the minis- 
try. 

June 29th, 1872, William Gift and John 
G. Eby, now of Morrill, Kan., to the deacon- 
ship. 

October 12th, 1872, J. G. Eby, now of Mor- 
rill, Kan., and William K. Mogre to the minis- 
try. 

June 25th, 1873, David B. Eby, now of Yel- 
low Creek, 111., to the ministry, and John 
Kreitzer, of Sabetha, Kan., and John Bower of 
Blackhawk Co., Iowa, (now a Progressive) dea- 
cons. 

May 8th, 1882, Peter R. Keltner, Israel Stees, 
and Augustus J. Kreps, deacons. 

September 2nd, 1882, Israel Stees and Levi 
H. Eby, now of Beattie, Marshall Co., Kan., to 
the ministfy. 

May 5th, 1883, Peter R. Keltner to the minis- 
try and George Sheik and Charles McNutt dea- 
cons. The officers whose locations are not nam- 
ed yet live in the district. The membership 
has been fluctuating because of emigration, rang- 
ing in number from one hundred and thirty to 
two hundred. Enoch Eby.

ALMANACS. 



How strange it seems that this production, 
the Almanac, should ever have been a monopo- 
ly ! Such, however, was the case in England 
from the days of James I. to the opening of the 
American Revolution — a period of one hundred 
and seventy-five years — and to effect its abolition 
required all the eloquence of Erskine. Benja- 

I min Franklin began his ''Poor Richard Alma- 
nac" in 1732, and continued it for twenty-six 
years. The sale was enormous, and yet, at the 
lapse of a century, it was found impossible to 
obtain a complete set. A publisher, who wished 
to republish the work, succeeded after five years 
of search in getting eighteen numbers, and after 

, his death they were sold for twelve dollars apiece. 
It is said that Franklin deeply regretted the ne- 
cessity of discontinuing a work in which he took 
such a deep interest, but public duty required it. 
He is said to have been the first American to 
make use of a nom de plume, and in issuing his 
almanac he preferred the local character of Rich- 
ard Saunders to plain Ben Franklin. "Poor 
Richard " was certainly a happy thought, and 
it proved the most popular hit of that age. It 
maybe added that the "New England Alma- 
nac," issued by Isaac Thomas, of Worcester, 
was a worthy successor of "Poor Richard." 
It was begun in 1775, and continued for forty- 
two years, being in its day one of the most pop- 
ular issues of the press; but a still more remark- 
able instance is found in the "New England Al- 
manac and Farmers' Friend," issued by D. M. 
Daboll, of Groton, Conn. This publication 
has been continued in the family for one hun- 
dred and twelve years, and is now in the hands 
of the third generation. It retains the old fash- 
ion of the weather predictions, and might have 



been good authority for Bottom and his dramat- 
ic associations. 



HISTORICAL COLD PERIODS. 



A collection of statistics of extremely cold 
periods presents the following facts of interest : 
"In the year 301, the cold was so intense in 
Europe that the Black Sea was frozen entirely 
over. In 401, the Pontus Sea and the sea be- 
tween Constantinople and Scutara in Turkey 
were entirely frozen over. The Danube was 
frozen over in 462, so that a whole army crossed 
on the ice. The Black Sea was again frozen 
over in 765, and the snow drifted to a depth of 
fifty feet. Carriages crossed the Adriatic Sea, 
or Gulf of Venice, in 859, and in 860 the cold 
was so intense that cattle froze to death in their 
stalls. The Mediterranean Sea was so thickly 
frozen over that it was passable for carriages 
and horses, and merchandise was carried across 
it on the ice. 

"In 1 132, the River Po, in Italy, was frozen 
from Cremona to the sea; wine burst in the 
casks containing it, and the trees split with a 
loud report. In 12 16, the River Po was frozen 
to a depth of sixteen feet. In 1234, the Medi- 
terranean was again frozen over ; and a whole 
pine forest was killed by the cold. In 1282 the 
snow was so deep in Austria that the houses 
were entirely buried beneath it, and many per- 
sons perished. In 1292 the Rhine was frozen 
over, and the snow is represented as being of an 
'enormous depth.' 

"In 1323 the Baltic Sea was frozen over so as 
to be passable for six weeks. In 1344 all the 
rivers in Italy were frozen over. In 1349, 1392 
and 1408 the Baltic Sea was frozen over in each 
year. In 1384 the Rhine and Gulf of Venice 
were frozen over. In 1423, 1426, and 1459, 
each year the traveling from Lubec to Prussia 
was performed on the ice. In 1620 the sea be- 
tween Constantinople and Iksador was passable 
on the ice. In 1670 the cold was intense 
throughout Europe. In i68i the cold was so 
severe as to split whole forests of oak trees. In 
1690 Scotland was visited with an awful snow- 
storm, which lasted thirteen days and nights, 
during which time nine-tenths of the sheep were 
frozen to death, and many shepherds lost their 
lives. In 1692 wolves came into Vienna, and 
attacked men and women, owing to the intense 
cold and their hunger."

THE BRIGHT SIDE. 



Look on the bright side. It is the right side. 
The times may be hard, but it will make them 
no easier to wear a gloomy and sad countenance. 
It is the sunshine, and not the cloud, that gives 
beauty to the flower. There is always before or 
around us that which should cheer and fill the 
heart with warmth and gladness. The sky is 
blue ten times where it is black once. You 
have troubles, it may be. So have others. 
None are free from them — and perhaps it is as 
well that none should be. They give sinew and 
tone to life — fortitude and courage to man. 
That would be a dull sea, and the sailor would 
never acquire skill, where there is nothing to 
disturb its surface. It is the duty of every one 
to extract all the happiness and enjoyment he 
can from within and without him; and, above 
all, he should look on the bright side. What 
though things do look a little dark? The lane 
will have a turning, and the night will end in 
broad day. In the long run the great balance 
rights itself. What appears ill becomes well — 
that which appears wrong, right. 



LITTLE THINGS. 



It is only a little thing — only a small sacrifice 
— therefore it is not appreciated. How many 
admirable actions are overlooked because they 
are little and common ? Take, for instance, the 
mother who has had broken slumber, if any at 
all, with the nursing babe, whose wants must 
not be disregarded ; she would fain sleep a while 
when the breakfast-hour comes, but patiently 
and uncomplainingly she takes her timely seat 
at the table. Though exhausted and weary, she 



serves all with a refreshing cup of coffee or tea, 
before she sips any herself; and often the cup is 
handed back before she has time to taste her 
own. Do you hear her complain — this weary 
mother — that her breakfast is cold before she has 
time to eat it ? And this is not for one, but for 
every morning perhaps, through the year. Do 
you call this a small thing? Try it and see. 
O, how woman shames man by her forbearance 
and fortitude, in what are called little things ! 
It is these little things that are tests of charac- 
ter. It is by these "little" self-denials, borne 
with such self-forgotten gentleness, that the hum- 
blest home is made beautiful, though we fail to 
see it, alas, until the chair is vacant, and the 
hand that kept in motion all the domestic ma- 
chinery is powerless and cold ! 



HOME TRAINING. 



A gentleman who had taught a colored school 
once told me that he thought the colored chil- 
dren, up to the age of ten or twelve, were really 
brighter and learned more readily than white 
children, but after that age they seemed to get 
dull and careless. He thought this a proof of 
innate race inferiority, and so did I at the time. 
But I afterwards heard a highly intelligent negro 
gentleman (Bishop Hillery) incidentally make 
a remark which to my mind seems a suffi- 
cient explanation. He said, "Our children, 
when they are young, are fully as bright as white 
children, and learn as readily. But as soon 
as they get old enough to appreciate their 
status — t'o realize that they are looked upon as 
an inferior race, and can never hope to be any- 
thing more than cooks, waiters, or something of 
that sort, they lose their ambition and cease to 
keep up." And to this he might have added, 
that being the children of poor, uncultivated 
and unambitious parents, home influences told 
against them. For I believe it is a matter of 
common observation that in the primary part of 
education the children of ignorant parents are 
quite as receptive as the children of intelligent 
parents, but by and by the latter, as a general 
rule, pull ahead, and make the most intelligent 
men and women. The reason is plain. As to 
the first simple things they learn at school, they 
are on a par, but as their studies become more 
complex, the child who at home is accustomed 
to good English, hears intelligent conversation, 
has access to books, can get questions answered, 
etc., has an advantage which tells.

USELESS DAUGHTERS. 



♦ ♦ » 



EDUCATION. 



The poorest girls in the world are those who 
have never been taught to work. There are 
thousands of them. Rich parents have petted 
them ; they have been taught to despise labor 
and depend upon others for a living, and are 
perfectly helpless. The most forlorn woman be- 
longs to this class. It is the duty of parents to 
protect their daughters from this deplorable con- 
dition. They do a great wrong if they neglect 
it. Every daughter should be taught to earn her 
own living. The rich as well as the poor require 
this training. The wheel of fortune rolls swiftly | 
round — the rich are likely to become poor, and ! 
the poor rich. Skill added to labor is no disad- ; 
vantage to the rich, and is indispensable to the i 
the poor. Well to do parents must educate ; 
their daughters to work; no reform is more im- 
perative than this. \ 



Education is not so much a positive and un- 
mixed good in itself, as a power capable of pro- \ 
ducing good. This is often overlooked by those 
who make the most strenuous and laudable ef- 
forts to raise the coming generation intellectually 
and socially. They see so clearly the need of i 
mental development and the benefits which it is I 
capable of producing, that they very naturally , 
conclude that, when they have secured it for the : 
young beings who are to manage the world in a i 
few years, they have done all that is needful to 
fit them for their important and responsible du- | 
ties. The truth is, that education, in the popu- i 
lar meaning of the word, gives strength, energy, i 
capacity, and influence, but not direction. It I 
puts a valuable tool into the hands, but does not ; 



always give the wisdom to use it. It enables the 
future man and woman to accomplish great re- 
sults, but does not always insure that they shall 
be good as well as great. It makes its fortunate 
possessor a larger, more powerful, and more im- 
portant factor in the community, but whether 
for good or for evil it cannot determine. 



A CHEERFUL WIFE. 



What a blessing to a household is a merry, 
cheerful woman — one whose spirits arc not affect- 
ed by wet days or little disappointments — one 
whose milk of human kindness does not grow 
sour in the sunshine of prosperity ! Such a wo- 
man, in the darkest hours, brightens the house 
like a piece of sunshiny weather. The magnet- 
ism of her smiles and the electrical brightness of 
her looks and movements infect every one. The 
children go to school with a sense of some- 
thing great to be achieved ; the husband goes 
into the world in a conqueror's spirit. No mat- 
ter how people annoy and worry him through 
the day, far off her presence shines, and he 
whispers to himself, '' At home I shall find rest ! " 
So day by day she literally renews his strength 
and energy. And, if you know a man with a 
beaming face, a kind heart, and a prosperous 
business, in nine cases out of ten you will find he 
has a wife of this kind. 



A MAN FOR LIFE. 



'■'■ Now I'm made a man for life ! " said a boy 
of sixteen when he received an appointment to 
work at a pumping-engine, wages at twelve shil- 
lings a week. His father was a fireman, who 
earned only twelve shillings a week, out of which 
there was a wife and six children to keep. The 
boy had never been to school ; but as soon as ev- 
er he was old enough to do anything he had to 
contribute to the general support. At first he 
earned twopence a day for looking after Widow 
Ainslie's cows; later on he received two shillings 
a week for minding horses; later on still, six 
shillings a week as assistant-fireman to his father ; 
and at the age of sixteen he was ''made a man 
for life," by becoming a fireman, with wages at 
twelve shillings a week. That boy was George 
Stephenson, who, as "the Father of Railways," 
will be held in grateful admiration all the world 
over for his mighty labors in connection with 
the locomotive eni^ine.

THE FIRST STEP. 



There is no step so long as the first step in 
any direction, especially a wrong one. Having 
once taken it, you are very likely to go farther. 
One who steals a penny will remember it when 
he thinks of stealing a sovereign. If he steals 
the sovereign first, when he is tempted by thou- 
sands he will remember he is already a thief. A 
perfectly innocent person dreads the soil of any 
sin upon his soul, but after the slightest smirch 
he cannot say, ''I am clean." The vulgar 
proverb, ''One might as well be hung for a 
sheep as for a lamb," means a great deal. Oft- 
en the lamb was stolen years before, and now 
why not take the sheep ? An idle word, half- 
oath, half-exclamation, leads the boy to swear- 
ing. Once having sworn, he will swear again. 
The first step may not be much in itself, but in 
its relation to our lives it is a giant's stride. It 
is well to remember it. 



and social harmonization, and for immortality 
and glory, is the best ; whereas that which most 
stands in the way of these things is the worst — 
but nothing is indifferent which has a bearing on 
man's development for time and for eternity. 



MAN 

Man is a creature put into this life to be 
awakened and educated with reference to him- 
self and to his fellows. He is put here to be 
educated through the body and through matter 
into ascendency over them, and to be educated 
respecting his character, for the sake of his con- 
dition hereafter. In order therefore to judge of 
what is good and what is bad, and among bad 
things what are worse and what are better, and 
among good things what are best and what are 
least good, we must consider the relation of 
things to the design and destiny of human exist- 
ence. That which tends to make the most of a 
man, and to make him quickest in the things for 
which he was created, and which is moat efficient 
in preparing him for harmonization in himself 



GOLDEN MOMENTS. 



How sorry one would be for a man who, start- 
ing out upon a journey, had his pockets full of 
golden coin which, one by one, had slipped 
through some unmended hole or rent, so that 
when he came to the end of his trip he had not 
one left, but lay down upon his bed a beggar ! 
How strictly we would look to our own pockets 
after hearing the tale, and make very sure that 
what coin we had should be well spent, or 
hoarded carefully, and nor scattered in the road- 
side dust ! Yet we start upon our lives, each 
one of us, with a store of golden moments of 
which we keep little account. Rapidly they 
slip away through the rents of sloth or ignorance. 
Many a one, rich in all the golden moments of 
seventy years, lies down at last scarcely able to 
remember how he has frittered and scattered 
them, knowing only that he has no more — that 
all are gone, and that he cannot say that he has 
purchased anything of use to himself or another 
with what might have bought so much. 



A PERFECT FRIEND. 



What we want, or ought to want, in a perfect 
friend is, above all, an ally for our best self — an 
ally against our own faults and weaknesses as 
well as against the world. If to this alliance 
can be added a sympathy so minute and flexible 
as to reflect our lightest emotion and to quiver 
with every passing ripple of apprehension, of 
fun, or of regret, which crosses our minds, we 
are indeed singularly blessed. But life is not so 
rich that we can afford to reject or despise the 
lower degrees of helpfulness. As we grow older 
we learn to welcome and to enjoy many a clum- 
sy expression of good-will at which inexperienced 
youth would chafe or wince ; and amongst other 
things we discover the value of yesterday's sym- 
pathy. 



We esteem in the world those who do not 
merit our esteem, and neglect persons of true 
worth ; but the world is like the ocean — the 
pearl is in its depths, the seaweed swims.

HELPS TO PRAYER. 



The first great help the prayer has is GocT s 
promise. ' ' Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father 
in My name, He will give it you" (John 16: 
23). , That promise cannot be broken. God is 
faithful. He never repudiates an obligation; 
but to make it doubly sure, Jesus, His Son, has 
endorsed the check. The banks of earth may 
fail, through fraud or ignorance or mismanage- 
ment, but God's treasury is never injured by 
forged checks, for He never pays them ; nor de- 
pleted by bankrupt creditors, for His collaterals 
are always good ; nor strained by unwise invest- 
ments, for He takes no risks and never "specu- 
lates in futures. ' ' His dealings are always ' ' spot 
transactions." ''Now," ''to-day," are the 
dates on His calendar. 

Another help to prayer is God' s providence. 
The history of all ages, the record made con- 
cerning the prayers of Abel and Abraham, of 
David and Daniel, of John and James, of Paul 
and Peter, of Silas and Stephen, and the person- 
al experience of every child of God sustains our 
prayer. Every answered prayer in the past is a 
support upon which the present petition may 
lean. The prayers of the saints in companies 
and regiments. and divisions, marshal themselves 
about the feeble prayer of every child of to-day 
and give it support, and cheer it to boldness and 
to victory. History is a help to prayer and his- 
tory cannot be changed. 

Another help to prayer is GocV s nature. " If 
ye, then, being evil, know how to give good 
gifts unto your children, how much more shall 
your Father which is in Heaven give good things 
to them that ask Him" (Matt. 7 : 11). God is 
our Father, and that helps us to pray. It is in 
His heart and nature to hear and answer. He 
cannot be deaf to the cry of His child. His 



child is near and dear to Him. If needful, He 
would let worlds burn up and all the material 
universe go to wreck, before He would let one 
of His children call in vain. Immutable in that 
relationship, the door to His presence is forever 
open and no man can shut it. The child's re- 
quests may be foolish and frequent, but the Fa- 
ther's love never tires of his complaints. 

Another help to prayer is God' s Spirit. "The 
Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know 
not what we should pray for as we ought ; but 
the Spirit Himself maketh intercession for us 
with groanings which cannot be uttered " (Rom. 
8 : 26). What heart is now too weak to pray? 
The Spirit, ] ossessed of all power, endowed 
with all wisdom, crowned with all excellence, 
enthroned in all majesty, "helpeth our infirmi- 
ties." It is almost a blessing to be weak to 
have such transcendent aid. In our ignorance 
He indites the prayer ; in our distance from God 
He makes intercessions for us ; in our lameness 
of speech He uses the eloquence of "groanings 
which cannot be uttered." 

With such helps to prayer, there is no task in 
life so completely done by others, there is no 
duty so fully assumed by others, there is no ex- 
pectation so perfectly assured by others. There 
should be no service more cheerfully or hope- 
fully rendered. Remove the hindrances, accept 
the helps, and be assured your prayer cannot 
fail. — G. A. Nunnally. 



SHE WOULD NOT CHARGE. 



My home is at Keuka, Fla., not far from the 
center of the State. About thirty miles to the 
west is the old town of Micanopy. Fifty years 
ago it was a prosperous Indian village, where 
once lived the powerful Indian chief after whom 
the place is named. 

It is now a place of some business, and is 
noted for its delightful orange groves. It is 
laid out in lots from the smaller size up to three 
and four acres, and these lots are now filled with 
large orange trees, thus giving the town the ap- 
pearance of one vast grove. 

Two years ago business called me to the town, 
and I put up one night at a boarding-house kept 
by the widow Knox. A number of others were 
boarding at the same place. The landlady 
seemed very kind to all present. In the morn- 
ing I paid my bill, and went on about my busi- 
ness. 

Six months afterward it became necessary foi

ne to visit Micanopy again. It was near mid- 
light when I reached the town. T turned in at 
he same house where I stopped before, and by 
I young man was shown into the same neatly 
urnished upper room in which I had slept on 
ny previous visit. After partaking of a good 
breakfast the next morning, I asked the kind 
ady what my bill was. She said, " Fifty cents." 
[ tendered her a silver half dollar. She reached 
ler hand to take it, then suddenly letting her 
land drop, she looked me full in the eye, and 
lervously said : *'I am informed, sir, that you 
ire a minister." I told her I was. She then 
>aid, ^^ I never charge a minister for stayi7ig in 
niy house y I told her that I did not wish my 
position as a minister to exempt me from paying 
.ny hotel bills, as I was traveling on business. 
She insisted upon adhering strictly lo her rule. 
[ went away from that house, saying to myself. 
There are more good people in this world than 
it gets credit for." All day long these words 
rang in my ears: ^^ I never charge a viinisier 
for staying in my house. ' '

SOME EVENTS OF INTEREST IN THE 

LIVES OF SOME OF OUR OLD 

BRETHREN. 



It is generally known that Elder Henry Kurtz, 
our pioneer editor, emigrated from Germany a 
Lutheran minister. On board the vessel he fell 
in company with Elder Henry Reubsome, who 
w^as educated for a Catholic priest. Although 
one a Lutheran and the other a Catho'ic, they 
iSeparated at New York warm friends. 

To their joy, they met the next time at an 
Annual Meeting, both members and .ministers 
imong the Brethren. Brother Reubsome died 
some years ago at his home near Springfield, O. 



When brother Henry Kurtz joined the Breth- 
ren, it greatly distressed his father-in-law. He 
sought to prevail on brother Henry to return to 
the Lutheran faith, but failed. He then secured 
Frederick P. Loehr, who was teaching school in 
the neighborhood, and active in the Lutheran 
faith, to visit brother Henry. It is said he spent 
two days in brother Kurtz's family; having like- 
wise failed to prevail on brother Henry to re- 
turn, he took his leave of the Kurtz family. 
After having gone eight miles on his return, he 
became so convinced that he returned and de- 
manded baptism of brother Kurtz. Brother 
Frederick became an elder in the church and 
died a faithful member a few years ago 

With brother D. P. Sayler's life and faithful 
service in the church, our readers are generally 
familiar. Brother Daniel came to the church 
early in life, and served as deacon but a short 
time, when ]^e was called to the ministry. 

It is said on the occasion of his election, when 
the result was announced, brother Daniel be- 
came irritated, accused the church of a lack of 
judgment, left the meeting and went home. Fie 
related the matter to his wife, who, being na 
member, like Job's wife gave but little encour- 
agement. Brother Daniel being sincere and 
conscientious, in his secret devotions he began 
to be in trouble. The matter grew until he was 

in great distress. Elder Price, hearing 

of the matter, was touched and came to brother 
Daniel in the midst of his distress. Brother 
Daniel protested that "he was empty," "had 
nothing for the people," "was unqualified." 
Brother Price pointed him to a number of seem- 
ingly empty vessels that God had anciently call- 
ed, and by God's grace did a great work ; if he 
lacked wisdom he should ask of God. 

It is said that through brother Price's influence 
brother Daniel, some weeks after his election, 
was installed in his office. 

From the above we see that our brethren an- 
ciently as well as now had some difficulty at 
times to get brethren to accept duties to which 
the church called them. And frequently pre- 
mature conclusions are drawn relative to breth- 
ren's future success as ministers.

Reading is well compared to filling a granary 
with grain, and thinking to sowing seed. We 
should read, not to contradict and confute, but 
to weigh and consider. Meditation is active ; 
reverie, idle thought.

There is knowledge in the realm of spirit as 
well as in the realm of matter. He who live.-) in 
daily converse with his personal Saviour does 
not merely believe in Jesus ; but he knows whom 
he has believed. The knowledge of Jesus is to 
the disciple of Jesus as truly an assured fact as 
is the knowledge of the earth's structure to a 
geologist, or as a knowledge of the sun's outline 
is to the astronoiier. While our walk is by 
faith, it is a walk toward One whom we know as 
surely as we kno^v any personality in the uni- 
verse.
